The programme Traces presents one of Jiři Kylian's choreographic gems alongside new works by Marco Goecke and Crystal Pite. Double You, by Jiř Kylian, is a solo of just under fifteen minutes, in which a man depicts the ups and downs of life in virtuoso body language, against the background of passing time. Marco Goecke, a master of sombre atmosphere, suggestion, magic and absurdism, creates works that are sensational, idiosyncratic and innovative. The Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite is an associate choreographer with Nederlands Dans Theater. Her ballets for the company, such as The Second Person and Plot Point, have always had resounding success, both in the Netherlands and abroad.
